comment Billboard Designing: Why design at higher resolution instead of the actual, lower print resolution?
No worries. Glad I could help. :)

comment Large Format Printing viewed fairly close- suggestions?
No, it's simpler than that. You export at the 1/10 scale and tell the printer to scale it up. I can't imagine any grande format printer software that couldn't do that. I have never submitted a PDF for a billboard at 1:1 scale. (PDF doesn't accept the full dimensions of large billboards, even if InDesign or Illustrator could output them).

comment Are there specific considerations when sending a design to a newspaper?
The "Ads guy" is probably the ad sales rep. There are also production people who manage the prepress and printing. I always try to reach the production people at any new magazine I'm sending to, to get their specs, which are not something the sales guys know much about. It is harder with newspapers, for some reason, but can be done with a bit of gentle persuasion and persistence. :)
